Simple answer is No. It what the Iphone 4 should have been but lets be honest the amount apple update the phones the iphone 4 will be getting cheap and cheaper (if your iphone breaks) then fork out when the iphone 5 comes out (if you want an iphone). The new features are great but for me it is not worth cancelling my contract (getting charged for it) then get another Iphone contract and spending a lot to just get the phone/ spending around £500 for a pay as you go phone. Both options are very expensive. But then again this is just me. I would rather keep my money than buy a phone that quite possibly be out of date in one to two years with an upgrade being released.

The only reason behind your purchase should be Siri and the slightly improved camera. The improvements in speed will be barely noticeable. Siri isn't very useful if you live outside the U.S (apparently):

But Apple is promising updates.

I say just wait for the iPhone 5 if you own the iPhone 4. But if you currently have something older such as the 3GS, upgrading would be good.

Just like Windows... upgrade every other release. I have a 3GS, so the upgrade will definitely be worth it.

im still very happy with my iphone 4

Siri is why im upgrading. Siri looks cool.

You are a fool... UNLESS your upgrade is at a very very low price.

Siri is coming later to iPhone 4 as well.

AlexMyDG4564d ago

As soon as the iCloud gets out of beta, which won't be any time soon. 2 Months at least, to cover the iPhone 4S sales.

I heard Siri won't be coming to the older models. It should be available on the iPad 2, though. So only products with the A5 chip. Just a way of making Apple more monneyz - upgrade or you can't get it.

Don't listen to these dorks. You get what you want mate. No one here should freaking judge you or say you're a fool.

By the way Siri is only for the 4s!

techexclusive4564d ago

Its quite a cheap upgrade. But I like Siris :P

techexclusive4564d ago

Let's just say that Siri is a long-distance drivers dream. :) Also a lazy persons dream, either way you will like Siri, and that is just the beta version.

Fair play to them. On the ethical hacker side of things I would use the hack as leverage against Apple to continue to support their equipment. As they just dropped support for their iPad mini2’s etc. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with them, they work perfectly fine but are now blocked from receiving security updates etc. So the consumer is forced to purchase a new product that does the exact same thing.
